"Treat me kindly, my beloved friend, for no heart in the entire world is more grateful for your kindness than mine. Don't be angry with me for long, and don't lock me up as punishment. After all, you have your job, your friends, and your entertainment. I only have you."


ABOUT US

The Alpine Humane Society of Brewster County, Texas began operation on October 26, 1982 in response to an article in the October 14, 1982 issue of the Alpine Avalanche (click to see the article) concerning the dreadful conditions at the so-called shelter which was located near the old city dump. The purpose of the Humane Society is to shelter homeless and abused animals, operate a progressive adoption program, investigate abuse cases, and encourage the spay/neutering of animals in order to control overpopulation.

The Alpine Humane Society is a non-profit organization with a 501(C) (3) tax status. It has a membership of approximately 30. The Society is governed by a nine member board with terms rotating every two-three years.

In addition to membership dues, donations and fund raising events, AHS is supported by interest from a more than $1 million trust established when Dr. Lois Helen Cole left her entire estate to the Humane Society in 1996. As specified by Dr. Cole in her will, only the interest from that trust fund is accessible to AHS. In 2012, AHS donated more than $50,000 to the operation of the Alpine Animal Shelter, including veterinary fees in Brewster County, shelter supplies, food for the animals and outside kennels. AHS volunteers also provide more than 1,000 hours of their time yearly to the shelter animals, including everything from cleaning up poop to walking and socializing the animals.

Hundreds of animals a year pass through the shelter gates. The shelter is usually at capacity with approximately 15-25 dogs and 6-12 cats awaiting homes. The new (2011) shelter was built and is operated by the City of Alpine. Both Alpine Animal Services and the Alpine Humane Society work together relocating abandoned and/or abused animals into new homes. The new shelter is located at East Old Marathon Highway.

Current 2013 AHS Board of Directors:

Ann Moore, President
Diane Baylor, Vice President
George Bradley, Secretary
Jodye Stone, Treasurer
Regina Bartlein
Nancy Beckwith
Jean Loefer
Jesse Kelsch
